Read full description of the books:
I wasn't impressed starting out with this little novel and even now hesitate to give it four stars. I really think it deserves three and a half but will round up because I think three is too low a rating. Though not a fan of murder-mysteries, a friend recommended me this and gave me the book to read. Admittedly, it's a rather simple and slow-moving plot, but once I got into it I rather enjoyed it. Part of it is expectation; if I were looking for a mixture of Dan Brown and Sherlock Holmes, this book would have been a terrible disappointment. But I try to take a story in the spirit it's offered, and what I found was a pleasant Sunday sort of read with just enough action and intrigue to keep things interesting. I did not read the first Dr. Gladstone tale and do not feel it would be necessary; though there were a few mentions of it, this made a decent stand-alone story. There were some shortcomings, notably that though Dr. Gladstone is not portrayed as a super-sleuth, she still missed some rather glaring details I would expect a doctor to notice. There was also the matter of the impropriety of the titular death. The reason - and part of the means - offered up at the end seemed very flimsy, and though not impossible it certainly seemed unlikely. Again, I did not take it too seriously and did still enjoy the book. I was also pleasantly surprised by some well-delivered humor and more than a few passages that hinted at talent waiting to be fully explored. I'm still no fan of the genre, but I think the author has potential. My recommendation: this is a good book for rainy afternoons, waiting room stints, and cross-country flights. And the author might be worth keeping an eye on.
